How far west are you going ? Visit Yosemite - it's fantastic. If you can't get into the campgrounds in the park, stay at the Mariposa KOA nearby. It's very good too, especially for RVs.

I will be going as far west as Reno. Possibly dropping my trailer
there at a relatives. Then using my vehicle to explore. Thanx for the campground info..

Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado?

You don't say what direction you will be coming from so I'll try just for the area listed.

Wyoming: Yellowstone Park, Teton Park, Cody, the Bighorn Mtns., in July Cheyenne Frontier Days, the Snowy Range Mtns., Devil's Tower,

Colorado: Rocky Mtn. Park, Pike's Peak, Mesa Verde, Royal Gorge, Leadville, Granby, Garden of the Gods,

Utah: Great Salt Lake, Bryce Canyon NP, Zion NP, Capitol Reef NM,

That should give you a few things to consider.
